PURCHASE AND SALE OF A BUSINESS

When businesses change hands, many different issues must be considered. There are tax implications, employee issues, regulatory concerns, and much more.

INCORPORATION AND BUSINESS ORGANIZATION

Most business owners are usually unsure about whether they need to incorporate or whether they should instead form a partnership or remain sole proprietors.

We can also assist businesses through the incorporation and organizational process by assisting with governmental approvals, name searches, by-law assessments, and organizational overviews.

Ontario legislation now permits many professionals to incorporate, including physicians, veterinarians, dentists, physiotherapists, and a number of others. While operating through a corporation will not protect you against most liabilities, there can be significant tax and operating benefits.
